I am currently laying out my portfolio for various jobs, and revisiting old work and I thought that I hadn't put on my blog. Here are some illustrations from a book I made during my MA in 2012, called 'Clifford and the Cloud of Fear'. It's a story about a boy called Clifford who likes dressing up as a beaver. It's a heavily illustrated book with a moral message about consumerism.

Everyone loves plants at the moment, right? They do make me happy, although I am not the most green-fingered of them all, hence the invention of the Knitted Cacti range that I hope brings joy into the lives of fellow plant lovers but unfortunate plant killers. Last year, I was asked to produce some plant-y patterns for a lovely magazine called Aloe, made in Huddersfield (more pictured below). I just got my hands on it and wanted to share the work with you:

At the Leeds College of Art, where I run a Portfolio Development class on a Saturday, I am part of a print collective called The Short Print collective! I forgot to share this last year - I took part in 20:20 which is a yearly print exhibition/swop where you produce 25 prints 20cm by 20cm. You send them out and receive a box with 25 prints in ! It's fab. At the time, I was drawing lots of fish, so I decided to screen-print a fish n chip print. Above is the positive, ready to print and below are the stacks of prints, ready to be sent, all wrapped (as fish and chips are) in newsprint.
